The lower class people here in Mundruczó’s daring and bold film, just happens to be non-human, real-life dogs – around two-hundred and fifty of which were involved in making this incredible genreexperiment of a film. The winner of last year’s Cannes Award ‘Un Certain Regard’ (an award given to films with various types of “original and different” visions and styles that work to seek international recognition), White God is nothing short of jawdropping in its ambition and ultimately realized vision. In Hungarian with English subtitles, the film transcends its European region to connect its display of politically and socially marginalized cultures to a universal level. White God follows two youthful and innocent characters whose early first-hand experiences with injustice lead to full character changes, into disillusioned and battle-hardened learners of the sometimes cruel real-world. First-time actor and thirteen year old Zsófia Psotta stars as Lili, a girl who is sent to live with her divorced father Daniel (Sándor Zsótéro), bringing along her trumpet and dog, (and the film’s second star) Hagen, a mixed-breed that is seen as an inconvenience to everyone except his loyal young owner. So when Daniel’s apartment manager learns of the dog and tells him of the state’s tax that must be paid for owning mixed-breeds, his frustrations give way to his doing away with Hagen, depositing him on the side of the road as a helpless Lili is left to watch Hagen grow out of sight, confused, abandoned, and alone. At this point, the rest of the film brilliantly unfolds in cutting between Lili and Hagen in parallel-path narratives, which track their journeys as they each struggle to navigate through their new and uncertain worlds. Lili, at first only slightly angstful, slowly shades into an authority-defying little anarchist in her own right, shown unbending to the wills of her father or band teacher’s hypocrisies, while continuing to search for Hagen. Hagen, meanwhile, is Tech Talk I Have Some Old Equipment Still in Use, What is the Typical Lifecycle for this Equipment? By Sid Kato, Array Systems, Inc. The typical lifecycle of computer equipment is 3 to 5 years. Your computer becomes obsolete because the manufacturers no longer support your computer’s hardware, software, or both. Even though your computer may continue to function past its expected “life,” finding a replacement for a broken or failing component becomes difficult. Software that fails beyond its expected life is no longer supported by the manufacturer. And failures always seem to have a way of happening at the most inopportune times! In these instances, maintaining an older computer, especially if you don’t have the expertise yourself, becomes more costly than replacement. Disposing old equipment is a subject for a later column. However, for the basics, follow your local e-Waste guidelines as computers contain toxic components and have to be disposed of properly. Also, be sure to eliminate all personal information from your computer. You certainly don’t want a hacker to find your information on a computer they found in the trash! Dear Readers, this column addresses frequently asked technology questions by small business owners. Please email your questions to pr@heraldpublications.com and we will answer them in future columns. Thank you and enjoy! • In TerriAnn Ferren’s March 26th article about the Cherry Blossom Festival, she referred to a tent set up by the Torrance Akita Club; however, the club is called Akita Inu Hozonkai Los Angeles Branch (AKIHO LA).
